Magritte Red Model (Shoe/Toes) by 

Magritte’s The Red Model itself became a model through its use as a cover for the second edition of Andre Breton’s Le Surrealisme et la Peinture. In 1945 Duchamp and Donati collaborated on a window display promoting the book at Brentano’s, the New York bookstore. They reproduced the shoes in emulation of Magritte.

Size 10 (GB) leather/acrylic

My main interest is painting Aviation Art.
I get a lot of enjoyment researching the historical background behind the picture I’ve been commissioned to paint.
I work in acrylic on my big paintings on canvas board but use water colors, pastels, soft and oil, for smaller pieces.
I also enjoy doing pet portraits in soft pastels on tinted paper, from photographs. Ideal presents for Xmas and birthdays.

  • Hi Alyssa,
    I thought you’d like this. Do you like the chopped off feet look in the boots?
    I only spotted it when I was taking the photos and I put in the red and white soft balls just to fill in the top of the boots.
    Merry Xmas Neil
